I've had a mysterious issue lately myself, car starts fine runs fine then out of the blue engine dies as if i had hit the kill switch, there is still fuel pressure and the car will restart and stall over and over then like magic everything is ok and the car runs fine, My alternator is suspect as it is noisy until it warms up or the rpms under load are increased above 3000rpm. Could the alternator really cause the car to shut off like this.
